Tacey Sr., Michael J.
Hampton Twp., Michigan
Michael, age 71, passed away unexpectedly May 21, 2019. He was born in Bay City Michigan April 3, 1948 to the late Floyd and Anna Tacey. He married the former Nancy R. Hemenway on July 11, 1970 and she survives him. He was an avid hunter and camper, was a member of Stromberg's Car Club, and the proud owner of a 1971 Cutlass. He was retired from GM Delphi and from farming after many years of service. Although his life was full and he enjoyed the outdoors, his greatest love was the time spent with his family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who weren't just a part of life, they were his life.

MI; grandchildren, Deven Tacey, Steven (Monica) Woodbury, Latisha (Austin) Pierson, Alex Tacey, Cassie Green, Kennedy Kerry-Green, Kyle Green; great-grandchildren, Weston Woodbury, Kyliana Green, Madilynn Gordon; siblings, Owen (Jeannie) Tacey, Floyd (Angie) Tacey, Joe (Amy) Tacey, Annette (Bob) Gaines, Rick (Michelle) Tacey; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
